600 × 335


The 2018 Jaguar XF is available in six trim levels, your choice of two body styles and four engines, and is available as rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. All of these customization options ensure that you can design the vehicle that will give you the specific driving experience that you’re looking for. Additionally, the XF is more stylish and eye-catching than your typical sedan and offers drivers the true luxury driving experience that drivers are looking for.

Drivability is indeed something to consider when shopping for a car and the XF is undoubtedly a performance-oriented car. While it’s not the fastest vehicle in its class, the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 generates 380 hp and 339 lb-ft and gets you from zero to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds. And whether you're cruising around back roads or commuting to work, you’ll find that the XF is fun and easy to drive in whatever driving situation life throws at you.

Technology & Convenience

You’ll have two infotainment systems to choose from, either an 8-inch or 12-inch display and this will control all functions other than climate control. Of course, you’ll be able to connect your smartphone, either by Bluetooth or a USB hookup. There’s also the choice of either a 380-watt or 825-watt Meridian digital surround-sound package making it easy to bump your favorite tunes in your favorite ride.

The XF also offers voice control that commands the entertainment system as well as your smartphone to make sure that your drive is as safe and convenient as possible. Jaguar also has a proprietary navigation system build into the infotainment center.

If you’re looking for more bells and whistles, you’ll want to check out the Vision Assist Package which includes front and rear park assist, emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning, as well as adaptive LED headlights. This package is not available on the base model but is available in every other model Jaguar offers.

Lastly, you’re probably wondering about utility. Luckily for you, the XF makes for an excellent road-trip escort. Beyond being fun to drive with excellent handling, the XF is also comfortable, quiet, and roomy. The trunk space in the 2018 XF is more significant than average which means you’ll be able to comfortably fit any luggage or cargo that you need to haul around. And, the roomy backseat can handle both front-facing and rear-facing child seats with ease; making this a real family vehicle.

In summary, the 2018 Jaguar XF offers something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a performance vehicle or a family vehicle, we do not doubt that you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Jaguar XF. Visit us at Jaguar Albany to see for yourself just how sleek this vehicle is in person.
